Default Pass Pulled B.S.

Today at the great bullshit resort known as Snowbird, I got my pass pulled. For how long some may ask they didn't tell me. How can I get it back? They didn't tell me. So you may be wondering, What did I do to deserve this punishment? Well you see as I was riding onto a merging trail I simply yelled "Look out!" To a skier down hill crossing my path not watching uphill. The Patroller said he "say everything" Claiming I shouted 'Get the fuck out of the way' To a twelve year old kid. So I'm wondering what your thoughts are on this great cluster fuck known as Snowbird Ski Patrol

Either way, he was downhill of you, why should he have to "watch out"???

it sucks but here's the skiing and boarding responsibility code:

1. Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
2. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
4. Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
6. Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
7. Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.

my suggestion is to call the resort speak to management and apologize.

Good plan. The reason I got it pulled is for yelling, They thought I swore which living in Utah the Mormons hate swearing, I avoided him just fine. I wanted him to be aware of me that is all.

Down hill from you at all, it's your job to get out of his way. Lots of people ride with music nowdays, don't trust that yelling at people will get them to move, you need to be the one to avoid them.

If you are are uphill to him you are responsible to avoid him no matter what. Its hard for me to believe they took away your pass for that without a warning. Can you be more descriptive?

How does yelling justify getting my pass pulled? I didn't run into him or even come close.

He was crossing a flat in my path. I was coming down a hill on my way to another part of the resort. I simply yelled "look out" to let him know I was coming down the hill as he was clearly not paying any attention.

They probably thought you were out of control because you were yelling for someone to watch out. If they are claiming you dropped f bombs then I would argue it NICELY with someone in the resort office.
